Historic Solvang A Danish Delight For Travellers

Nestled in the Santa Ynez Valley wine country, Solvang’s unique combination of Danish heritage and California charms has called to generations of travelers. But Solvang is never one to simply live in its past.

Just a two-hour drive from Los Angeles and a scenic four-hour jaunt from San Francisco, Solvang delights a new generation of travelers with an eclectic mix of fresh, farm-to-table fare found in its bistros, family-friendly pancake houses, brew pubs, and diners. The charming downtown is home to nearly two-dozen tasting rooms, all within easy walking distance from one another.

Golf, horseback rides, downtown trolley rides, Segway and walking tours delight the entire family. And evidence of the Danish-Americans who helped settle Solvang is everywhere, including in its Scandinavian-style architecture, authentic Danish bakeries, unique boutiques, art galleries, museums, and antique shops.

Solvang’s reputation as a world-class destination has only grown. Solvang made Expedia Travel’s 2017 list of top North American vacation destinations, and USA Today’s 2016 list of the country’s Best Historic Small Towns.

With 18 inns, including AAA Four-Diamond hotels and the luxurious Alisal Guest Ranch, Solvang has unique and interesting options to fit most any budget. And annual events such as Julefest (Yule-fest) in December, Taste of Solvang in March, and Danish Days in September, inject energy to the town throughout the year.
